Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: David Nelson Band with an excellent Peggy-O

I wouldn't assume that just because a thread doesn't get a lot of responses, it's going unnoticed and unappreciated.

I'm really digging 2010-01-28. The FOTD and the jam that proceeds it is phenomenal. I've listened to most of the show so far, as well as parts of the 01/30 show. The Sweet Melinda and the ensuing jam also contains some incredibly inspired playing. I look forward to hearing the rest of these shows.

The 01/28 show just has such a great vibe to it. Everyone is so relaxed. Just enjoying themselves and letting some incredible music ooze out in the process. So much fun to listen to. The experience you describe in your review sounds like paradise.

Yeah, that jam out of Friend Of The Devil was amazing, the Nelson Band and Brown Chicken Brown Cow String Band playing Friend Of The Devil>China/Rider Segue Jam>Midnight Rider Jam>... We all reached lift-off during that jam. You can hear the crowd reaction on the recording.
I love the way Dave Nelson peppers his sets with many of the songs Jerry used to do like Louis Collins, Ballad Of Casey Jones ect..
The show on the 30th was a big sandwich around the DNB song Fable Of A Chosen One spanning both sets with many Grateful Dead teases where it sounded like they were going into The Other One or Fire On The Mountain.
